Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have
some signs of use (although not major ones).
May have slight surface noise when played.
Additional Marks & Notes
If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially
if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record.
This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip,
cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.
Plenty of fire here – a soulful, spiritul sort of energy that really sets the work of Billy Bang apart from any other players on his instrument! Bang's use of the violin here is really unique – almost as a fluid generator of tone and sound – one that's woven beautifully into ... LP, Vinyl record album
A really sharp little album from Steve Lacy – recorded with a trio that features Bobby Few on piano and Dennis Charles on drums! There's a sense of force to the record that grabs you right away – a punch from Charles' drums and Few's piano, which is peppered strongly by Lacy's soprano ... LP, Vinyl record album
A very hip little set – not just because of the players, but also because of the choice of material! Half the tracks are Monk compositions, and the other half by Herbie Nichols – so the record's filled with angular, modern tones that echo back to some key jazz moments of the postwar ... LP, Vinyl record album
A pretty electric set from reedman Jimmy Giuffre – a record that moves between fusion touches and some of the freer modes of Giuffre's later years! Jimmy himself is all acoustic – working on flute, soprano, tenor, and clarinet – but the group also features a fair bit of keyboards ... LP, Vinyl record album
Open, swinging live work from the George Adams/Don Pullen Quartet – and a set that shows both the group's sense of jazz tradition, and their willingness to play with it on their own terms! The tracks here are all quite long, jamming numbers – built on lively rhythms from the bass of ... LP, Vinyl record album
A great ode to Dannie Richmond's longtime musical partner Charles Mingus – who'd passed shortly before this session – done with styles and sounds that are quite different than some of Richmond's other work! The album's got a definite blue tone – Richmond really feeling Mingus' ... LP, Vinyl record album
A killer tribute to the music of Herbie Nichols – played by a committed batch of modernists who are clearly inspired by his genius! Misha Mengelberg's in the group on piano – and his angular lines on the keys have plenty of Nichols and then some – lots of Misha's own inventive ... LP, Vinyl record album
Art Farmer really found a great home for his music on the Soul Note label in the 80s – a place where he could continue to grow strongly, in ways that almost let him find a new sort of edge in his horn! This album's a wonderful example of the strengths that Farmer found at the label – ... LP, Vinyl record album
A great little Kudu set from guitarist Joe Beck – a player who's sounding a lot tighter here than some of his odd psychedelic experiments of the 60s – but still pretty darn great overall! The style is smooth, as you'd expect from Kudu, but Joe's still got plenty of edges in his guitar ... LP, Vinyl record album
Gary Burton hits a sweet electric funky sound here – a great groove that really makes the album stand out from most of his other work! The support Burton gets is a big reason for the greatness of the date – as he's working in a group that includes Eric Gale on guitar, Richard Tee on ... LP, Vinyl record album
